James Franco’s The Disaster Artist is on a hot streak this awards season, but its actor-director —  currently in the hot seat over sexual misconduct allegations — skipped the Critics Choice Awards ceremony.

Despite triumphing in one of the earliest categories of the evening, the 39-year-old was not present at Thursday’s ceremony, where he took the statuette for Best Actor in a Comedy for his work in the Tommy Wiseau biopic.

Vice Principals star Walton Goggins was on hand to present the award during the broadcast’s one-hour preshow, which streamed online prior to the main show. Amid a smattering of applause following Franco’s victory, Goggins informed attendees that Franco was not present.

Bits of Franco’s performance as Wiseau in The Disaster Artist, however, did appear in a montage at the top of the show’s telecast.

Earlier Thursday, five women accused Franco of inappropriate behavior via a Los Angeles Times exposé.

“I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out,” actress Violet Paley told the publication of an encounter with the actor. “I got really nervous, and I said, ‘Can we do this later?’ He was kind of nudging my head down, and I just didn’t want him to hate me, so I did it.”
